They come on the heels of the opening of the region's biggest library on June 16. The Mohammed Bin Rashid Library (MBRL) houses 1.1 million books in 30 languages spread over 54,000sqm on seven floors and in nine libraries.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, shared the importance of books and reading, noting that the first word revealed in the Quran was 'read'.
"Reading is nourishment for the soul and mind," he said, highlighting how history teaches that civilisations rise and nations prosper through knowledge.
Entry to the library is free, but those wishing to visit have to register at https://mbrl.ae/ or download the app.
